The Iron Life Podcast #72: Training with Injuries and My Favorite Finishers

Most people sabotage their progress by taking huge blocks off from training.

Occasionally these gaps are justified in their own minds due to an injury, but I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to put your training on a total hold whenever you get injured.

In fact, that’s the exact opposite of what you should do.

On today’s show, I’m going to teach you how to work around injuries, rather than through them, as well as my favorite finishers that you can work into your routine right now.

These finishers are guaranteed to give you a bigger bang for your buck in your workouts.

The Iron Life Podcast #70: The Philosophy That Will Transform Your Body & Life

The Iron Life Podcast #70: The Philosophy That Will Transform Your Body & Life

Kaizen, is the Japanese philosophy for “continuous improvement, or change for the better”.

This philosophy, when applied to fitness, is the best way to achieve the outcome you want, and maintain it for the long haul.

It’s what I teach my coaching clients to help them melt fat, build muscle and drive positive change in their health and lives.

Think of this as a way of setting standards, and then continually improving those standards.

I believe that to achieve fulfillment and true happiness we must be on a never ending quest of self-improvement. So then the Kaizen philosophy should always be applied to every area of your life.

The idea of constant improvement by introducing small, gradual changes to all areas of your life can lead to a compound effect, and over time result in drastic change.

In today’s show I’m going to teach you how to apply this philosophy to your fitness (and life) so you can start making true change today.

The Iron Life Podcast #64: Why You're Not Losing Fat

The Iron Life Podcast #64: Why You’re Not Losing Fat

You might think that no matter how hard you train and how well you eat that you “just can’t lose fat”.

Endless HIIT, Keto diets, intermittent fasts and everything else just don’t seem to work for the long haul.

Here’s what you need to understand… The amount of lean muscle mass that you have on your frame dictates the rate of your metabolism. So, the more muscle you have, the faster your metabolic rate, the more calories and fat you can burn throughout the day.

So if you’ve been starving yourself to death and doing endless cardio, you’ve actually been SLOWING down your progress for the long haul!

On today’s episode I’m going to teach you exactly what you need to do to finally take off that unwanted body fat once and for all.

Check it out and learn exactly what you need to do in the gym and in the kitchen to see the results you want.
